ABA Commission on Future of Legal Services Comment Deadline Extended to Dec 20

The deadline for comments to the ABA Commission on the Future of Legal Services issues document has been extended to Dec 20.  I have previously blogged with some ideas.

Here are some more thoughts:

Institutionalized Consumer Input

Should there, perhaps, be more institutions for consumer input into the operation of the profession.  Whatever else one can say, one can not argue that the market is working to align the needs of the public and the profession.

The Role the ABA should play in National Access Advocacy

The ABA is very present on issues such as LSC funding.  And it has supported the creation and networking of state level access to justice commissions.  But its role in advocating for a national voice, national research, national solutions, etc, has been more muted.  How could this be strengthened?

Happy commenting.
